About C & D Charters
You’ll have a great day on Lake Michigan and return to shore with a bountiful king salmon and steelhead catch, when you go out on our charter fishing boats. Both boats are equipped with the customers best comfort in mind, and are fully equipped with top of the line fishing equipment, fish finding technology and navigational electronics. Our boats are coast guard inspected annually and professionally maintained. Despite our safe and well-equipped boats, don’t forget to view our fishing trip checklist for other items you may need.
Captain Chad Biersach / Owner
Capt. Chad has been fishing Lake Michigan off the Port Washington breakwalls and off of friend’s boats since he has been 3 ft. tall. He purchased his first boat in 1996 which he moored in the Port Washington Marina.
Capt. Chad earned his captains license in 2001 and started C&D Charters the following year to share his love of Lake Michigan fishing with others. The off season keeps him busy enjoying spending time with his wife and 2 children, working on his 2 boats, hunting and fishing.
Captain Travis Kornely
Capt. Trav was born and raised in Port Washington, which fueled his love for fishing. While fishing Lake Michigan in his 17 ft. Glastron throughout high school was fun, he knew he wanted to do more with fishing once he graduated from college. Travis graduated from UW-Platteville and got his captains license in 2014. He has enjoyed taking customers out on fishing charters ever since.
When Travis isn’t wearing his captain hat, he wearing his teacher hat – teaching high school tech ed. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two dogs doing anything outdoors – especially their daily dog park outings.
